Watch Out For This Man…

Do you have a watch? Most people still do. I have a metal analogue Fossil. The question is why; when I have a phone. The answer is “I don’t know”, but I figured I could write a post about watches. I can’t seem to think about anything else to write about… Sort of fucked.

You all have phones. I know you do so don’t deny it. People who don’t have phones, don’t know how to use the internet. Phones tend to come with built-in clocks. As do laptops and all computers. In fact, almost everything, with a screen, has a clock. My step-o-meter has one. My parents’ camera has one. Our car has one and I’m pretty sure the oven has one too. Not to mention the fact that there seems to be a clock in every shop, bus/train station and many roads.

What I’m trying to convey, by listing the obvious, is that there is generally a way of telling the time in every situation. That way you can’t be late. Think about it. If you don’t know the time, you cannot be late or early. Well, you still can, but at least you have an excuse. The people who organise things, put these clocks everywhere to make sure that we, the people who attend things, don’t use “I don’t know the time” as an excuse. But enough about that.

There is an old man somewhere. I think he’s in Paris. This guy gets paid for telling the other, not so old men, what is cool and what is not. The not so old men tell everyone else. This old man is kept in a little cardboard box on the very peak of the Eifel’s tower. He does not know what the world looks like. He never leaves the box. He hasn’t seen all the clocks that the people who organise things have installed. This is why he still believes that watches are cool.


He’s right on top…


You don’t need a watch. Yet you still wear one. I still wear one and so do all the other cool kids. The watch industry ranges from digital to analogue. The watches come in all different shapes and sizes. They have different functions. Some tick differently, some make different sounds. Some are bigger, some are smaller. Not to mention the whole category of watches that just look idiotic.

The problem is that people still wear them. And It’s all because of this old guy. This is why I’m writing this post. The old guy must have some someone who brings him cheese. That’s right, he only eats cheese. This someone needs to be convinced to take the old guy on a walk and show him all the clocks. That way the old guy will realise that watches are no longer cool and we can all stop splashing out on them. Good plan? I think so too.

So if you know the old guy, please take him on a walk.

Thank You!
